Arizona State University, Tempe, formally known as Arizona State University at the Tempe Campus, is located in the heart of Tempe, Arizona approximately eight miles from downtown Phoenix. Founded in 1885 as the Tempe Normal School, ASU has, over the course of its more than century-and-a-quarter history, grown into the largest (by enrollment) public university in the United States. Admission is ensured to residents who complete high school in the top 25% of their class with a GPA of 3.0 or better. In addition, ASU currently enrolls students from more than 118 countries around the world.

ASU Tempe is the oldest and largest of the university’s four campuses with a current student population of over 50,000. It boasts several respected schools and colleges including the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering, the W.P. Carey School of Business, the Sandra Day O’Conner College of Law, the School of Sustainability and the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. It is also home to an enormously popular athletic program of nine men’s and eleven women’s varsity teams collectively known as the ASU Sun Devils.

The Tempe campus is approximately 862 acres in size and is entirely encompassed by an arboretum. Notable campus landmarks include the Gammage Memorial Auditorium (designed by Frank Lloyd Wright), the Charles Trumball Hayden Library, University Bridge, “Old Main” (built in 1898, the oldest building on campus), and Palm Walk, with its 111 palm trees. Students can choose to live either off-campus or within the extensive system of on-campus dormitories.

Apart from academic pursuits and vigorous support of their athletic teams, students at ASU Tempe take full advantage of the surrounding urban environment.
